With three kids at home, you can imagine how much “stuff” we have in our house. It seems that we continue to accumulate things over time and I fail to donate the items that we don’t need. With Macks birthday coming up early next month, I want to buy him toys, but I also want to make sure that these toys are going to get a lot of use around our house.
When I go shopping, I now try to make more of a concious decision to buy things that will both last us through many stages and that our entire family can enjoy. Thankfully Disney Baby has a lot of toys that fit both of those criteria and I cannot wait for Macks to open them on his first birthday! Check out my top 4 favorite toys that I know my entire family will love to play with.
Macks used to love bathtime, however lately a fear has started to settle in and he cries every single time I give him a bath. I was it to be fun and enjoyable for him and something that he can look forward to rather than dread. My youngest daughter used to be scared of bath time as well and now she loves it. Luckily there are several tricks that I learned along the way to turn her into a lover of bath time. I’m now trying these things on Macks to help put him at ease.
Macks has been teething what seems like non-stop lately. Along with the drool that comes with teething, he’s also fussy which means that he’s in a bit of pain. Seeing my litle one not feeling well gives me such heartache, so naturally I am trying to do whatever I can to ease some of the pain.
There are several things that I’ve heard of to help ease some of the teething pain and everything is different for each child, but we’ve found one thing that is not only effective for Macks, but also brings him comfort no matter where we are.
With two little ones in school, Macks at home with me all day, and trying to manage a full time job from home, I am always looking for ways that I can make things easier on me throughout the day. Our schedule is pretty concrete, so I try to stick to that to make our day go more smooth, but there are also more things that I do to make my life as a mom easier.
Macks turns one in just a few short weeks, which means I’ve almost officially made it through a year as a mom to three. It’s been a challenging year, but one of the best years of my life. Life with three kids has exceeded my expectations and I’ve learned a lot along the way. Not only have I learned things about my children, but also about myself. After one year, here are five things I’ve learned as a mom of three.
